  • 1 box white cake mix
  • ingredients required to make cake egg whites, water and oil
  • 1 (3 oz) box strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 container whipped white frosting


  • Mix cupcakes as directed on the back of the box and bake as directed. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.
  • Boil 1 cup water and add jello, stir until completely dissolved.
  • Poke holes in cupcakes with fork or toothpick. Don't be afraid to pick right down in there several times. You want plenty of holes for the jell-o to seep into.
  • Using a spoon, pour strawberry gelatin mixture over cupcake.
  • Then put cupcakes into the fridge for about 2-3 hours to set.
  • Once set, frost cupcakes using whipped frosting.
  • Top it off with fresh, sliced strawberries.



This same recipe can be used to make a 9 x 13 cake. You can use any combination of cake mix or Jell-) flavor you like with these. Orange Jell-o works well with these. Also, for 4th of July celebrations, it might be fun to use a Berry Blue Jell-O.
